Can You Imagine If You Marry with A Four-legged Friend?

On June 28, 2018, a very special wedding was held in a small fishing village in San Pedro Huamelula, Oaxaca, Mexico. The villagers married a crocodile to  Victor Aguilar Ricardez, the mayor of San Pedro Huamelula, for good luck and good harvest.

It is reported that marrying a crocodile is a custom of the Chontar Indians, which began in 1789. They believe that the ceremony can bring good luck to fishermen on the Pacific coast of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec of Oaxaca. In this custom, crocodiles are seen as princesses who bring peace and prosperity to the tribe.

The crocodile is mainly baptized first, then put on a custom wedding dress. On the wedding day, it wore a veil and marched on the street with orchestral music. After the parade, the crocodile held a wedding ceremony with the mayor in the town hall.
